If controller is present when game is started it's required to play the game. Unplugging brings popup window asking to reconnect controller. However simply unplugging controller before starting the game and unchecking controller option from controls settings makes it possible to play with mouse and keyboard even if controller is connected.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/272470/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (272470) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
